Rosemary's keep-it-fresh tips
  • Mix and match flowers and use small pieces of greenery to fill in any gaps.
  • Make them no more than two days in advance of the event where they'll be displayed.
  • Once they're made, place each one in a clear plastic bag, leaving the ribbon out so it can be hung from a hanger (so the flowers won't get flattened).
  • Before sealing the bag closed, mist the flowers with water to keep them damp.
  • Store the balls in a naturally cool, damp area, keeping them away from heat and light.
  • Do not crank up the air conditioning because air conditioners tend to de-humidify as they cool. As the moisture is taken away, the flowers could collapse.
